GeoNet Update: “Online” word omission issue

Blog Post created by MMathias-esristaff Employee on Oct 9, 2018

Recently, we have had several reports that GeoNet is experiencing a “bug” when our members use the word Online in comments and replies. Linking to ArcGIS Online or posting the word Online within a comment/reply in GeoNet will result in an omission of the word from the content, URL, or HTML once it is posted. As an exception to the bug, when “@mentioning” the @ArcGIS_Online space this issue does not occur. 


We want to apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this is causing our Community members. Our platform vendor is working toward a resolution to fix this issue and will push a platform update as soon as possible.


Please continue to reach out to the GeoNet team if you experience this issue in your comments, replies, or in other content types, or for any other issues you may have with the content. Thank you for being a valuable member of our GeoNet Community.


Thank you,


 The GeoNet Team
